Hi, I'm Hsin-Yu Chen (陳欣榆). I came from Taiwan, and spent the first 22 years of my life in a beautiful area 木柵 (which means "wooden fences".  Historically Han people used the fences to separate their territories from the aborigines'), Taipei. I got my PhD from the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics, University of Chicago, and I'm now a postdoctoral fellow at the Black Hole Initiative, Harvard University. 


Although I love star gazing, I have been involved in an entirely different approach to observe the Universe--detecting the gravitational waves from compact binary coalescences. My thesis research focuses on Gravitational-Wave Multi-messenger Astronomy, and I'm a member of the LIGO scientific collaboration. I also joined the Dark Energy Survey-Gravitational Wave working group to haunt for the electromagnetic counterparts of gravitational-wave signals. To know more about what I have done in research, check out my CV on the sidebar!
